calculating normals

Recommended Posts

the same as with any model
take 3 points (a,b,c) of a quad,tri from the landscape
p = b - a;
q = c - a;
normal = crossproduct(p,q)
normalize(normal)

this''ll give u the planes normal for the tri.

step 2 to make it smoother take a landscape point see what other tris/point share this point add up all their normals add divide them by the number of tris. repeat with all the landscape points
